Paper Abstract

Labeling of DNA with fluorescent reporter is generally accomplished by attaching fluorescent dyes to the 5'-end of primers for PCR based applications, including geno-typing and linkage mapping. Requirements of spectral resolution and chemical stability have guided us toward asymmetric fluorescein dye structures whose chemical and physical properties have been fine-tuned through substituent modification. We have developed dyes that are amenable to 5'-prime labeling on solid support as dye-amidites facilitating automated dye-primer synthesis.
